Shock-induced separation of turbulent boundary layers represents a long-studied problem in compressible flow, bearing, for example, on applications in high speed aerodynamics, rocketry, wind tunnel design, and turbomachinery. Experimental investigations have generally sought to expose essential physics using geometrically simple configurations.
